Why Change Is Hard

The reason people don’t change is pretty simple. We don’t want to do hard things, we say we want to change, but we don’t want to be uncomfortable. Why would you choose to be uncomfortable when you can just stay the same?
We might work so hard on something until we finally make some progress that we’re happy with and then we become complacent. We don’t want to be uncomfortable anymore. How do we find a middle ground between being uncomfortable and being happy at where we are now? Wouldn’t it be so much nicer if you actually wanted to be uncomfortable? I mean, we can do that. It sounds crazy and it’s much easier said than done I know, but stay with me.  (more…)

When There’s Not A Reason

I have always been someone who takes responsibility for my actions, I say sorry when I mess up, I always try to see different sides of situations and I always make sure to solve my own problems rather than leaving them a mess for others to clean up. We can all dedicate ourselves to being that great person all we want, but that doesn’t guarantee us that bad things won’t happen.

When Life Flips Upside Down

Life is always unpredictable. You go to sleep one night hoping that tomorrow will be a bright day but the next morning brings to your worst day. You think that days can only get so bad but then life shows you that it can get worse. You wonder constantly what you did to deserve this, and you never get any answers. You can only take so much until you feel like this feeling is all you have. Life is unfair. You can’t find anyone else to put the blame on. You cant even blame yourself most of the time. Things just happen.
What we CAN do, is try to remember a few things.   (more…)

Lessons Learned

Considering it’s the last day of the year I think now would be a good time to reflect on 2017. This year pushed me to my limits emotionally and mentally, I went through and overcame things I didn’t think I would ever have to. But this year was also the best year I’ve had so far. This year I started caring about myself and realized that I have a lot more control over my life than I thought I did. Whether 2017 was your year or not, I want to share some things I learned that I hope will help start your year off

Holding On

There’s a certain feeling that I think most every person gets at a funeral, when everyone comes together to grieve and celebrate the life of whoever has passed. Every good memory with the person fills our minds and any and all bad times are like they never happened. Any problems the family had just goes away, or at least is put away for the time being. People who don’t really know each other are hugging and supporting each other, and when you leave you feel like you need to remind everyone that you love them because you wish that you got to tell that person one more time that you love them

An Emotional Abuser

Why would we purposely let ourselves get involved with an emotional abuser? Obviously we wouldn’t, but it happens. And that’s why it is so hard to recognize it because it happens without our knowledge.
Loving an emotional abuser is like a drug, you don’t think that it’s bad for you because you’re having a good time, until you find out it has destroyed your outlook on life, self esteem, and eventually you’re addicted and getting away isn’t an option. You think you can stop anytime you want, but they control you now.
